Space called Treblinka

Staffordshire University is committed to making a difference through its research and impact in communities.


Since 2014, novel archaeological work by the Centre of Archaeology at the former Nazi Death Camp at Treblinka in Poland has been embedded into the resource portfolio of University College London’s (UCL) Centre of Holocaust Education (CoHE).


A workshop and resource pack ‘Space Called Treblinka’ have been integrated into a CoHE course that has been attended by over 400 teachers and used across the Beacon School Programme which covers 160 Beacon Schools across England. The Beacon Schools partner with a network of 1,600 local schools to improve Holocaust education.

The Treblinka materials are therefore accessible to 18,000 people each year and focus upon raising awareness of the former Death Camp at Treblinka and genocide investigation. This forms an important part of the Centre’s work in Holocaust education and promoting genocide prevention. 

The Research, Innovation and Impact Services team can provide information about all aspects of research at Staffordshire University.
